The University of Mannheim provides staff members with a personal Zoom account.
With the license assigned to you, you can host meetings with up to 300 participants. Just like the Zoom rooms for virtual lectures, the settings have already been configured by the University IT. In addition, you enjoy other benefits such as data processing within the European Economic Area.
For using the personal Zoom license, you need to sign in to Zoom in your browser or in the Zoom client with your Uni-ID (user ID).
If you sign in, your Uni-ID is disclosed to Zoom. Please observe the relevant information in the Data Protection Policy.
If you have already installed Zoom, you can continue with the next steps. For information on how to install the Zoom application, please refer to the Instructions.
Step 1: Select “Sign In”.
Step 4: You are forwarded to the login page of the University of Mannheim where you need to enter your Uni-ID.
Step 5: On the next page, you are informed about the processing and disclosure of data. Please agree and confirm so that your account can be created.
The default settings of your account comply with the University of Mannheim’s requirements. In addition, you can adjust several settings in accordance with your requirements.
By clicking on the gear symbol, you can open the settings menu to adjust the settings for your profile or for a specific meeting.
Then your profile on zoom.us is displayed. Here you can update your profile information, e.g. your name. By default, your Uni-ID is displayed as your name. We recommend to change this.
In this menu, you can also adjust the settings for your own meetings. For more information, please refer directly to the Zoom support.
